Restoration work

One of our specialities here at Studio Crafts is take your old worn out pieces of jewellery & restore them back to their former glory.
Just recently we had a customer that came in with a 2 diamond rings that needed our attention.

This is how the single stone ring came in to us

The setting edge completely worn out

The sides were also very worn

We soldered on a new plate to the top

Metal was then soldered to the sides

Pete then reset the diamond & finished the ring

The 2nd ring was a 6 stone diamond ring that was in need of a re-claw

The claws were worn

Pete soldered on new claws
